Football Fish

One more post today. This is a Football Fish or Anglerfish. Okay, this is just gross looking. It lives in water over a thousand feet deep where there is no light, it's usually black and that weird appendage on top of it's head glows on the tip to act as a lure to attract other fish. Their stomachs can expand to several times its normal size so it can eat fish larger than itself. This was the weirdest thing I've seen in a long time. By the way, this was not alive. It was caught in 1989 by a fisherman not far from San Clemente Island.

I think a better name would be "tumor fish" as he looks like he's got a major one! Really, really ugly dude, isn't he?

I've never seen a fish like this one it's so ugly and strange maybe because it's so unusual to see that.
